Power steering pressure hose replacement

I need more info to help you. Take it to a good shop. It is ok to drive it there, just try to tape or plug or wrap the hose just in case all the fluid has not drained out you don't want to make a mess. It will be hard to steer, you will just have to drive old school, like it was before power steering. Mike

Power steering pump has a part that connects to it that appears to need tightening but doesnt.. this is the source of the leak ..what is this part called and how do you fix it

Well here's my 2 cents. When you say it won't tighten, are the threads stripped and it just spins or is it as tight as it will go and still leaking? Is it's stripped, I'd recommend replacing the part(s) with damaged threads. The pressure line is around 40 bucks at Autozone. pump is 49-57, depending on which steering you have. Get the pump with the reservoir, not the bare pump.

If it's not stripped, just leaking...try to pull that pressure hose head off and look for any damage to any seals, metal, O-ring, etc. You might get lucky and just have to replace a cheap O-ring. If you do, put a little oil on the O-ring before you put it back together.

My LTD had all kinds of power steering leaks and I ended up getting most all new parts before I got it to completely seal up. It was a nightmare. Read and heed the other post about how to get the air out of the system when you're finished. Fords can be notoriously loud on power steering pumps. I'd avoid Cardone brand if you can help it. I found their quality to be very suspect.

On a 1994 olds cutlass supreme SL can i put a regular rubber hose over a leak on the power steerings high pressure hose to buy myself time before i can afford to replace it? i plan on hose clamping it...

If it is a small leak you might be able to wrap it with a rubber hose and apply several clamps to put a band-aid on it. However, this is only temporary at best and could still cause problems depending on where it is leaking. One possible alternative to a new hose - if you take the hose to a shop like The Hoseman (or equivalent) they can rebuild the hose cheaper than buying a new one.

1994 tbird is overheating but heater doesn't work. What could the problem be ? Already replaced raditator, water pump.

Does water flow freely through the heater core? Unplug the hoses from the heater core and put water through the inlet hose and see if it comes out through the other opening. If it's not the heater core is plugged and needs to be replaced. Try this with very little water pressure, you don't want to pop your heater core, if it's plugged, then your carpet will be soaked.

1996 thunderbird 4 6 power brakes and power steering fades in and out while driving"

This may be your problem.

FORD: 1994-96 THUNDERBIRD LINCOLN-MERCURY: 1994-96 COUGAR ISSUE: Steering efforts at low speeds may intermittently increase to the heavier for highway setting on some vehicles. This is due to electrical "noise" from the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) being picked up by the Electronic Variable Orifice (EVO) module. The EVO module then interprets this as an increase in vehicle speed and reduces the steering assistance to the heavier for highway level.
ACTION: Replace the EVO module with a new module that has improved filtering for electrical noise. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
SERVICE PROCEDURE Replace EVO module (F6SZ-3F712-BB). Locations are as follows:
  • On 1994-95 vehicles, the EVO module is located under the package tray in the trunk.
  • On 1996 vehicles, the EVO is located under the heater blower case on the passenger side.
Refer to Section 11-02 of the appropriate year Thunderbird/Cougar Service Manual for additional diagnosis and repair information.

WARRANTY STATUS: Eligible Under The Provisions Of Bumper To Bumper Warranty Coverage
OPERATION DESCRIPTION TIME 960402A Replace Electronic Variable Orifice (EVO) Module - 1994-95 Thunderbird/Cougar 0.5 Hr. 960402B Replace Electronic Variable Orifice (EVO) Module - 1996 Thunderbird/Cougar 0.3 Hr.
